Exploring the bazaars and Hans in the historic center of Bursa is a great way to spend the day. My wife and I spent 2 days. Look for the famous Turkish towels and silk.

We thoroughly enjoyed the covered bazaar. In addition to all the handmade small goods , we also found a shop that sells locally produced cheese, olives, honey, jam, etc. Best hazelnut spread we ever had and fantastic honey. And at amazing prices!!
